Coffee table to ottoman

I have been on the look out for a coffee table with similar legs to the chairs that I have.  I found one today at the GW for $10. The only part of it that is real wood are the legs. It’s just awful.
I sprayed it, added a bit of distressing and some fabric. It’s better but I’m not that good of an upholsterer. I think some trim will help :)
Rhoda is hosting a Thrifty Treasures Party at Southern Hospitality.  Always one of my favourite types of parties :)  A girl can never get enough thrift.


  1. You would never even know that is the same piece....you did a fantastic job...I love the pretty apple green fabric, looks great!

  2. That looks really great!!! Beautiful fabric!

  3. I like the paint color and fabric you used, big improvement from that table!

  4. Gorgeous remake, you did an amazing job. I'm loving this blog and I shall follow for inspiration!

  5. I am lovin' that idea!!! It looks great in your room. Love the rug, too!


  6. Oh man I would so be your buddy if we lived close to each other :) Not happening anytime soon as we are on orders to Korea it seems.....we are trying to wiggle around it....but there is little we can do about it :(

    Anywhoo, I love love your latest creation Fab-U-lous! Your just on a roll lately! You go girl!

  7. You did great! And I think some trim would really set it off perfectly.

  8. You are a genius! I would never have thought to do that with a coffee table. I think you're a pretty darn good upholsterer! Great job!

  9. That is awesome! GREAT thinking and improv.

    Just saw your paper butterflies...love em!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for your kind visit!

    love, kelee

  10. You did such a great job on this! I have a coffee table that is the same exact shape as yours that I was thinking of re-doing. This would be the perfect solution! Hope you have a great week! ~Andrea @ Life in Dawleywood

  11. I am sooo enjoying looking through your blog. You have really worked hard to get out of the ordinary and add a creative flair to make things your "own".

    After several difficult years I'm finding myself crawling out of the cave and finding inspiration to make some changes.

    This is a wonderful use of this table. It is an encouragement to look at some ordinary things with different eyes! Thank you!
